    Hey guys, I dropped the ball (no pun intended) on getting involved in a Fantasy Football BIF this year. But it's not too late, YET! So with that in mind, I decided to start another fantasy football league BIF to see if there are any late-bloomers who still want to get into some action. So here's the deal.

    BUY IN:
    Minimum 100 ounces of beer, 1 BA bomber (90+) and a 4-pack (or 6 pack) of a highly rated local hoppy beer.
    Not too steep of a buy-in. I would like the shipping to happen within 2 weeks of the conclusion of the season, which is probably going to be around January 1st. Winners will most likely be determined before then, but waiting until after New Year's Day might be a good idea with the cold weather.

    Rules:
    Must have 2+ feedbacks or a sponsor in this BIF that will ship beer in your stead should you fail.
    Draft day will be Wednesday, Sept 7th at 9PM CST. ESPN will be the vehicle. I am hoping to do 12 teams, but 10 teams would be OK. Standard Scoring or 1/2 PPR would be acceptable depending on what people want.

    Winners:
    1st place will NOT ship a box, but all the rest will.
    12 teams:
    1st place: 5 boxes
    2nd place: 3 boxes
    3rd place: 2 boxes
    highest scoring reg. season week: 1 box

    10 teams:
    1st place: 4 boxes
    2nd place: 3 boxes
    3rd place: 2 box

    Rules are subject to change if I get some really good suggestions that people like. This should be fun, and it's an opportunity to get in on one if you are like me and missed out on the other excellent BIFs that are already happening.

    I am new to the forum, so I don't meet the feedback requirement but would love to participate in this. Since this is all anonymous, I'm sure my word doesn't mean a whole lot, but I'm good for the buy in.

    It should be noted that it's possible to draft Next Week and still have a full fantasy football season. That would mean the first week's games wouldn't count for anything.

    Going to push this back to Next Wednesday to see if we get more interest. I have some takers but also some spots open.

    Do you still have an opening available? I am debating on breaking the seal on my first BIF...

    Awesome! Noticed in some other leagues there are some built in organic mini LIF within the league play itself.

    Any thoughts to that being a part of this league?

    Yea, for example one could say

    " The first quarter back to throw for 5 tds in one game gets a bomber of ( insert quality beer here)"
    Annnnd whoever is lucky enough to have the quarterback that accomplishes that, gets a box!

    Awesome! Ohio is a fairly underrated beer state IMO, but I like doing my own small part to help change that. I'll probably throw out a side LIF toward that end if we're doing them.

    I am sending out the link now for the League. Draft is in roughly 24 hours. We still need 1 more person.

    Draft is tonight. League has been created and the link has been sent out. Still looking for 1 more person. League is called "Last Chance! BeerAdocate BIF" but it's private so you'd need the link.

    We are doing 1 PPR, standard scoring, snake draft. Hopefully I do better in this league than the other one I'm in, although I'm hoping I DON'T win this one seeing as how I'm running it. :slight_smile:

    So does anybody have another player in mind or are people scrambling to find someone else?

    In case you didn't see a PM I am running a LIF this week. The top score from a losing team brings home a genuine Hawaii-only beer and some other goodies.

    My prize for being the best of all the losers last week arrived. Thanks, Dan! Looks like some awesome stuff. I was at the Big Island Brewhaus back in 2012 and loved it.

    Your welcome! I saw you haven't had Sip of Sunshine or Super Session yet so thought you might like them. The thing on the right is my homebrew cider...

    Received a box from one of the LIF wins. This one lands courtesy of bjillo.
    Nice smattering of Wisconsin brews! Had a few last night already! Super pumped to try the Cran Bic and the Central Waters.
    The homebrew over there has me intrigued!!!

    Thanks bro! Cant wait to try the rest!

    I think @JDice20 has another haul to post from a LIF!

    Side note, targets are out and even though there are only 2 possible people that could be receiving beer from me, I am not sure how useful a "hint" would be. Both possible targets are east of me, and both are (slightly) North as well.
